Perry can be an elite edge guy...IF he can stay healthy. And that's the real "other than that, how did you like the play Mrs. Lincoln?" issue.
I love CM3, one of my all time favorite Packers...but $8M a year for a 33 year old who has clearly lost a step? I'm glad Gutentight took a pass.
I'm not convinced of this. We've seen him be a good edge player, double digit sacks and good against the run, but in his best season (2016) he only notched 47 pressures. 11 sacks and 47 pressures is good, but it's faaaaar from elite. I don't think Perry was ever going to be elite, regardless of health. Good, probably solid career maybe with a few good seasons sporadically, but never taking that next step.
There is more to the game than pressures. When he has use of both hands, he was / is one of the best at setting the edge.
